Hi.

Accessing MySQL is equally easy in any of the languages (C++, Perl,
PHP, Java). So if that is the main point and it's correct that you,
Prabu, are already comfortable with C++, stick with it.

A reason a lot of people use Perl, PHP or Java is that many use MySQL
in conjunction with web pages and these languages come with built-in
support or ready packages for writing CGI for creating web pages.

So if you do not write CGIs - and it doesn't sound like this - or you
already have appropriate C++ libs for CGI and templates, then the
question of which, C++ or Perl is "better", boils down to a simple
language comparison.

In other words, since MySQL is easily accessible in both, put that
point out of the requirements list and decide on the remaining
factors, whatever they may be for you.

HTH,

	Benjamin.
